There are some models that has a built in dial that can control the air flow.
I am using 1 call super beetle II 300.
About $8 only. Use for 2 years liao. Still ok.
Isit weak ?
I wanted the one that can adjust air flow

Actually how does adjustable air pump work ? Does min setting = 0?
Eg ocean free zero noise z 1000 but out of stock
Anyone here use the z2000 before ? How Low is it’s min setting ?

Wah means sat come Liao all chiong go get ?!
I will see the quality of the platies...If the quality is good,I may scoop 20 females.

But I just bought 6 today.Cannot buy too much now cos my tank is overcrowded and wont be buying anymore cos also I have up and coming fry growing up.

Go and look at the stock on Saturdays first,if the stock is lousy,then I wont touch it.

Maybe I am the only one whacking the platies at Seaview haha.

THanks. Also for air pump, wattage and flow rate which one more important ?

Main concern is I want a Super weak air pump for my bettas
1ft tank.
I have the Ocean Free Super Beetle air pump.The volume of air pumped can be controlled by the dial control on the pump.

For platies....look at their below.

For males,there is a sharp penis like structure below them.

For females,there is a triangular shape like structure below them.

I am doing some breeding for my own pleasure.

Some of mine(2015 stock)had grown old and died.I have a 生死补 on the mini whiteboard in my study.

Fell in love with platies ever since I had my first tank 13 years ago.Tried sailfin mollies,guppies and swordtails throughout the years but I still went back to my first love.

thanks. i saw the catalogue.

another noob qn, the W of the air pump doesnt matter right? it only tell us use how much electricity only.
the main thing to look out for is the L/hr right?
